Faces Carved Into Trees Is A Mystifying Spectacle

While these are absolutely awesome to look at, we can't help but think that some of the trees can't have been too stoked about it. Also, just imagine crossing paths with one of these faces in the middle of a forest when the sun's going down and the eerie vibes of isolation in nature are already running amok. Just a little bit of yikes.

One person's "stupid and pointless waste of time" is another person's "cool thing to do with a photocopier. On its most basic level, a photocopier should be the least creatively charged tool there is. Like, it's whole job is to make uninspired, exact copies of things; usually boring documents. But this man sees through the humble exterior of the photocopier and unlocks its creative potential.

Fancy Brickwork To Gawk At And Feel Unskilled Over

We don't really think about bricks. In a world where new buildings are steel and transparent, the brick has become a symbol of rugged pragmatism of days past. But in the right hands, a few bricks can become a highly aesthetic thing of satisfying perfection. They're graceful. Very unlike these "not my job" moments of incompetent construction or these OSHA safety failures.

Really Not Super Great Tattoos

It's everyone's personal decision whether or not they should get an almost unrecognizable mural of Goku on themselves. It's a decision many of us wouldn't make, or at least we'd spend some extra time looking for an artist who could do a really good job of it. But to each his own, and as a result there's a whole lot of strange and troubling tattoos out there. As a society we make a lot of tattoo choices that have people asking questions.

Tattoos can be tricky business. One typo or slip of the hand can have someone wearing "I love moom" on their bicep for the rest of their life. Tattoo artists take multiple precautions to idiot-proof the process, but we still end up with tattoo choices that have people asking questions. Sometimes the customers themselves are uncontrollable, like in the case of this male Karen who didn't believe a tattoo shop owner.

Graphic Designer Trolls Prospective Client

What makes this clever act of trolling from a graphic designer all the better is the fact that they go ahead and put that much detail into each logo. Like the tagline on the last one? Pure gold. Either the poor client on the other end of this interaction was truly as clueless as they come across, or they were just leaning into the ridiculous situation.

Sure, taste is subjective, but most people would admit that a hand made Dora the Explorer themed knife set isn't exactly the greatest use of most people's time and effort. It's still cool that people continue to make skillful creations of questionable taste.
